Use fabric pendant lights over dining room tables and kitchen islands where you want a softer glow for eating and entertaining. Glass shade pendants utilize glass or acrylic to maximize the light output and emit a concentrated light, for specific tasks, like at a desk or work surface.

The guys at Transparent House have a great idea for what to do with all of those translucent old cassette tapes clacking together under the bucket seats of your Impala: glue them together and fashion them into a lamp.
In the morning the lamp opens, gradually increasing the light intensity to give the user a more comfortable awakening. LULL is an award-winning product made for GiForm 2007, an industrial design competition in Norway.“
Another trait that adds into the mystery of this unique light is the way it controls the illumination. It is the tap that doubles up as the dimmer in this case. Just turn it around and you can control the effects. Must say this will indeed be a unique addition in your home decor.
The $139 price tag is rather steep IMHO, but then again good ideas are hard to come by, and when they do, they are rarely cheap.
Transparent House isn’t providing directions or even saying if they are selling these, but the idea’s simple enough I imagine anyone could make this work with a little bit of elbow grease.
A sensor detects how it’s been positioned and operates the light accordingly. I would like to have a desk lamp like this to read focused and undisturbed in the middle of the night, away from the heat durring the day.
